ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Each new day my world appears before me
Familiar yet different; my place uncertain,
I interact with the other players
And the game continues. I gather tokens
Of their involvement with me, which seems real
But sometimes I’m not sure. I don’t know the
Score. Did I ever know the score? Game time
Elapses – sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly –
But I’m never quite sure where I stand. At last
This session ends. Experience points are
Tallied and my stats altered. Am I ready,
Truly ready for more gameplay? REBOOT…
Each new day my world appears before me
Familiar yet different; my place uncertain,
I interact with the other players
And the game continues… I have no choice,
But that is better than no game at all.

At least if there’s a game, I can still win.
